Hartfield Academy’s Helena Roe Signs with Millsaps College
Hartfield Academy senior, Helena Roe, signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Millsaps College this fall. Hartfield Athletics is proud to launch this all-star athlete into her college athletic career.
Helena made a huge impact on the Hartfield girls’ basketball program in her years on the team, helping set several records this year, including the most wins in program history. In a play that will live on in Hartfield history, she hit the game-winning shot which earned the Lady Hawks their first-ever State Championship. Helena has also won numerous district awards, including being selected to the State Championship All-Tournament Team, MAIS All Star, and All-MAIS Teams.
Helena was not only a productive offensive player for the Lady Hawks, but also a terrific defensive player, leading the team with four blocks per game and altering countless shots. “Helena is a remarkable young woman who works hard and leads with integrity. She is a tremendous teammate and will be an incredible asset to the Majors next season,” shared Head Coach Benton Ingram.
Hartfield Academy is fully accredited by both the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the MidSouth Association of Independent Schools (MAIS), the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Southern Association of independent Schools (SAIS).
